The 12th annual careers day for the Coffs-Clarence region was held on Thursday, 25 May 2017.
Kale Hardie-Porter, GeoLINK’s Urban and Environmental Planner, was one of sixty career champions to showcase the industry they work in.
The aim of the careers day is to raise the awareness and aspirations of young people about their careers. Some 1500 senior students from twenty high schools in the region attended.
This workforce development initiative contributes to encouraging young people to build a career in the region by informing of them about vocational opportunities and the pathways to employment. Emphasis was placed on the sectors of the economy where there is growth and demand, particularly Health and Community Services and Professional Services. There was also a strong focus on the impact of technology on current and future jobs.
